Ristorante Hotel Cipriani
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Located within Rio de Janeiro’s hottest address, the glamorous and iconic Copacabana Palace hotel, Cipriani is one of Rio’s most formal and historic restaurants, now open for almost 30 years. The plush, red-carpeted dining room with high ceilings and chandeliers looks out onto the hotel’s stunning swimming pool and is a place to dress smart. Chef Nello Cassese serves two different tasting menus, each exploring the different regions of Italy. The shorter Signature menu starts with beef carpaccio and organic egg and truffle and offers a choice of salted cod or wagyu beef main. Meanwhile, the longer Innovation-Tradition degustation takes in dishes such as risotto with mint, and also offers a main course choice of smoked tuna with caviar or lamb with lentils. Despite its name, this is not a branch of the global Italian restaurant brand.
